At the Metro Court, Laura speaks with Olivia over the phone, who fills her in on Dante’s condition. After the call, Cyrus approaches and gives Laura his condolences on her former son-in-law. He notes danger seems to follow their family. She lets him know that they are not family, and she has no love or warmth for him. He reminds that if he was the monster she believes him to be then he wouldn’t have kept a memento of the family that turned their back on him. He shows her a photo of a young Gordon and Florence, along with him and baby Martin. She accuses him of playing on how important family is to her in order to do more to get his mother home. He only thought she’d want to see a photo of their father before everything went wrong. He leaves her with the photo and walks out.

Martin meets with Alexis in Jordan’s office to discuss her defense, but all Alexis wants at the moment is a drink.

Alexis admits now that she is sober, she doesn’t like herself much, so she is thinking of pleading guilty and facing the consequences. Martin notes that won’t be happening.
